I Am A Certified Montessori Preschool Teacher And Kids Yoga Teacher
I am a Certified Montessori Preschool teacher and offer 11+ years of professional classroom teaching experience. Over this same period of time, I have also served as a part-time nanny for 5 families in California and Rhode Island. Further, as a certified children's yoga teacher, I have developed and taught yoga studio programs and have incorporated yoga into my classroom curricula. While my "passion for working with and caring for children" is obvious, I also have been recognized for my exceptional ability to communicate and interact with parents and other caregivers. I am currently teaching in the Reggio Amelia philosophy in Marin. The philosophy, though different from Montessori, has really strengthened my teaching and opened my eyes to a new way of thinking. I have grown tremendously and am grateful. I have decided to leave my teaching position in Dec of this year and am looking for about 20-25 hours a week nannying. I am not leaving because of the children or the school, but a personal decision. The commute has also taken a toll on me and would like employment closer. As a potential employer, it is important to know that I am extremely reliable, organized and trustworthy and possess an over-all positive attitude about life in general. I would welcome an opportunity to meet you. Thank you in advance.
